12oz. brown single from Party Source poured into a weizen glass at 40-45. No dating.

A: Pours a very hazy golden apple. 1/2 fnger head that's gone quick. zero lacing.

S: Fresh squeezed orange juice some cloves. and cinnamon?

T/M: Orangy twang and grapefruit notes. Getting some of that "soap" taste on the back half. I can't think of a better way to describe it. lightly tart, wheat base. Body is light and carbonation's not too extremely high. Finishes crisp and slightly dry.

D: Very easy to drink. Too bad it's not hot anymore. Who am I kidding? This is Cincy, I'll wait til tomorrow.

Bright orange-yellowish color with small suspended yeast particles floating around, has a small white head that doesn't last, light citrus aroma, light bready, malty flavors it leaves a flowery aftertaste.It has a very creamy and full mouthfeel, not as spicy and fruity as I remember, still very enjoyable and refreshing.

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

Poured a cloudy medium yellow with small yeast particles hovering throughout. The head was white, frothy and average in size with some really nice lacing and great retention. The aroma was strong with the scent of wheat, a mild grain malt and a flowery hop. It also had notes of orange, honey and a hint of spices. It tasted mildly sweet and a tad acidic with notes of orange and wheat in the beginning then matured to be a bit more on the spicy side with a nice hoppy finish and left the flavor sticking around for a short while. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a unique tasting brew with all the flavors of summer.
